I heard he was a free agent and he's looking for his options. He said on radio he wouldn't mind playing for the Habs if they would give him one more chance. I never understood why the team never let him play more for the Habs when we sign old guys like Brisebois.
Just saying a non-negative cameo by a callup seems to frequently generate fan expectations for a player that doesn't necessarily match what that player has shown over the longer haul at other levels. I've always thought that Cote got more attention for his little stint than he deserved, just as Stewart got a bit more for his 1 game last year than he deserved too. Good on them both for what they did, of course.
Then we agree. But for some reason I wasn't overly impressed when he was called up.
